A few weeks ago I was invited along to a Cocktail making masterclass hosted my Joe Bloggers and Curry's held at Revolution Vodka Bar where we spent our evening making coffee based cocktails! Normally when I drink cocktails I tend to stick to fruity and fresh ones, my favourites being Cherry Drop, Amaretto Sours, Long Island Ice Tea and Zombie Nation. So it made a nice change to try creamier and coffee based cocktails that I usually would overlook on a cocktail menu.
With the help of the two barman Josh and Rory we all got the chance to have a go at making cocktails of our own. We were all split into groups of 10 with 5 people per barman and made a range of different cocktails. My group made the cocktail "Honey Bee" which was made up especially for the event by the Revolution barmen themselves.
What You Need:
2 shots of Honey Flavoured Whiskey
1 Shot of Gomme Syrup
100ml of Espresso
A slosh of a milk and cream mix
Squirty cream to decorate.
How To Make It:
One | Along with ice add the ingredients one by one into a mixing glass
Two | Place the shaker onto the glass, give it a hard tap to make sure its sealed and shake shake shake!
Three | Tap the shaker wit the palm of your hand to loosen the glass and using a strainer pour the drink into a jam jar filled with ice.
Four | Add a blob of squirty cream, the more the merrier and enjoy!
